American Society of Cinematographers Nominates Roger Deakins and Rachel Morrison

The American Society of Cinematographers (Asc) feature film nominees tends to lean toward big-scale movies, and this year is no exception. Their top five include frontrunner Roger Deakins for his stunning visuals in “Blade Runner 2049” as well as Rachel Morrison, who photographed “Mudbound.” Left out were viable but smaller-scale contenders “Call Me By Your Name” and “The Post.”

So far, neither the Asc nor the cinematography branch of the Academy has ever nominated a woman for a feature film. So Morrison’s nomination is a big deal. (Next up for Morrison: Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Black Panther.”) According to a study by the Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film, women made up 5 percent of cinematographers on the top 250 domestic-grossing films in 2016.

‘Blade Runner,’ ‘Mudbound,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Land Asc Cinematography Nominations

‘Blade Runner,’ ‘Mudbound,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Land Asc Cinematography Nominations
The American Society of Cinematographers (Asc) has revealed nominations in film and television categories for 2017.

In the theatrical fields, three-time Asc winner Roger Deakins was nominated for “Blade Runner 2049” alongside Bruno Delbonnel for “Darkest Hour,” Hoyte van Hoytema for “Dunkirk,” Dan Laustsen for “The Shape of Water” and Rachel Morrison for “Mudbound.”

With her nomination, Morrison becomes the first female Dp to ever be nominated by the group. If she is recognized by the film Academy, she’ll also become the first female cinematographer ever nominated for an Oscar.

The lineup is nearly an all-digital one, with the IMAX photography of “Dunkirk” carrying the torch for celluloid alone. It also closely aligns with the British Academy’s nominees in the category, announced Tuesday morning. (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” was recognized there in lieu of “Mudbound.”)

The Asc also revealed its Spotlight Award nominees. The category was instituted in 2013 ago to shine light on under-seen independent

Boardwalk Empire's Paz de la Huerta files lawsuit against Lionsgate

Paz de la Huerta has filed a lawsuit against Lionsgate after being hospitalised on the set of horror movie Nurse 3D.

The actress who played Nucky Thompson's (Steve Buscemi) former mistress Lucy Danziger on HBO's Boardwalk Empire, was hit by an ambulance while working on the film in 2011.

According to The Wrap, the actress filed suit in New York on Tuesday (October 16).

de la Huerta alleges that she suffered "severe injuries and considerable pain and suffering" on set in Toronto on October 15, 2011. She claims that an unnamed stunt driver "caused his ambulance to strike [her] and knock her to the ground".

In her legal filing, the actress also says that she "sustained severe injuries and considerable pain and suffering, was confined to hospital, bed and home, was caused to undergo medical treatment and surgery in an attempt to alleviate her injuries".

The lawsuit notes that she "was caused to incur expense for treatment,

Nurse 3D Blu-Ray Review

Ever since Nurse Ratched terrorized Chief Bromden and Randle McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, nurses have been slotted into two categories by Hollywood writers. There’s the battle axe, like Ratched and Sister Jude in American Horror Story: Asylum (to give a more recent example), and the naughty nurse, like Dakota Block in Planet Terror, Elle Driver in Kill Bill and any number of adult actresses. To my knowledge, however, no film has ever combined the two with such nutty results as Nurse 3D.

Paz de la Huerta proves an inspired choice to play Abby Russell, a devoted nurse by day who stalks through clubs at night, murdering men she seduces into cheating on their wives. When Abby goes out drinking one night with new nurse Danni (Katrina Bowden) and finds herself intensely attracted to the young woman, she spends the night with her and begins to pursue her romantically.

Douglas Aarniokoski Talks “The Day” and “Nurse 3D”

Douglas Aarniokoski Talks “The Day” and “Nurse 3D”
Today is the day when The Day hits theaters. We’ve been covering the movie for awhile, and Dread Central got to chatting with director Douglas Aarniokoski about his post-apocalyptic movie, which stars Ashley Bell, Dominic Monaghan, Cory Hardrict, Shawn Ashmore, Michael Eklund and the woman that tugged my heart tails as a fourteen year old, Shannyn Sossamon.

The interview, which also features teases for Nurse 3D, is below, again thanks to DC:

Dread Central: The Day is this little indie movie I have been hearing about for some time now in interviews with guys like Shawn Ashmore and Cory (Hardrict) so I would think that getting ready for your theatrical debut has to be an incredible feeling, considering how ambitious the movie is. Can you talk more about that and how you became involved with the project as well?

Today, August 29th, filmmaker Douglas Aarniokoski's post-apocalyptic siege flick The Day is hitting the big screen courtesy of WWE Studios and Anchor Bay Entertainment.

To get you guys ready, Dread Central recently chatted with the director about his experiences working on the ambitious indie film that was shot in only 12 days during a grisly winter up in Ottawa, Canada.

Aarniokoski also discussed how the shooting conditions affected his casting process, how the film's moody saturated look was all done in-camera by cinematographer Boris Mojsovski and his thoughts on The Day being the first acquisition of WWE Studios.

The director also teased some tidbits on his upcoming Lionsgate project, Nurse 3D, which he promises lives up to this wildly provocative posters that have been released in support of the film.
